“Very pleasant hotel with familiar atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

The Villa Oriana Relais is situated in the upper part of Sorrent within a garden with lots of lemon trees and has a famous view on the Bay of Naples with the Vesuv.

The interior is kept simple and stylish, so if you prefer a cozy atmosphere, it's probably not the best choice.

The staff ist very friendly and familial, always kind and helpful, you will feel soon like a member of an Italien family, we loved that familiar athmosphere and a chin wag after the breakfast.

The breakfast was delicious with fresh paninis, salad, Quiches, cakes and homemade lemon products, not comparable with the common Italian breakfast. Enjoying the meal on the terrace, we almost forgot about the sightseeing.

Thank you, Maria, Pasquale, Elio and the rest of the staff, we hope to come back one day!

This small hotel is approached through an archway of orange and lemon trees and stands in a wonderful elevated position overlooking the Bay of Naples. The roof terrace and balconies afford far reaching views and all day sun culminating in the most beautiful sunsets. Maria and her staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful (particularly Elio) and the breakfasts of delicious freshly baked cakes and savouries were amazing. We walked everywhere but for those with limited mobility, some of the local restaurants provide a free taxi service arranged with the hotel. There is a regular bus service from the bottom of the hill - 5-10 minutes walk. This was an excellent base for visiting Capri, Pompeii and the Amalfi coast.

We chose Villa Oriana Relais for a three day break in early April as it was so highly recommended on trip advisor.From the moment we walked up the beautiful lemon tree lined avenue we knew we had made a great choice.We were given a lovely welcome and made to feel very much at home by every member of the family.The breakfasts were superb with wonderful home baking straight from oven to table. We would highly recommend Villa Oriana Relais to couples ,families or single travellers.

We are a family of 4 and have just stayed 5 nights at Villa Oriana. We were given the apartment just outside the driveway of the actual Villas Oriana. It was very spacious and had a wonderfully sunny terrace (complete with affectionate cat) but a little dark inside (ground floor of a 3 floor building).
The location means it's a bit of trek into town - 20 mins walk (and back up a steep hill) - but it's lovely and peaceful away from the bustle of Sorrento and its constant traffic. Several restaurants offer a pick-up service - Da Fillipo was the one we enjoyed the most, packed with locals late on a Saturday night.
The biggest plus was the friendliness and service of the team at the Villa - Pasquale was particularly helpful....and his aunt even drove us to a restaurant herself when the pick-up was delayed. Breakfasts were great, if a little heavy on the cake for a muesli man like myself.
Lots of things to do nearby. Pompeii, Ercolano, Vesuvius and several lesser known Roman Villas (Oplontis, Stabia) as well as Sorrento itself. Kids (13 and 8 yrs) thoroughly enjoyed themselves....even with the overdose of antiquity.

My boyfriend planned the weekend away in Sorrento (planning to propose to me in Capri that weekend) and without knowing this, I was expecting a typical B&B or youth hostel- but I was in for an amazing surprise. We arrived and walked up this beautifully lit path through the lemon trees to the villa, where we were greeted like long-lost family by Maria who welcomed us with complementary home made lemonade and limoncello, before showing us to our gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking Sorrento and the ocean. It was a great place from which to go to Capri, Positano, Pompeii and Heraculanium.

Although a little way back up the hill, (which might make it difficult for people who can't walk well and haven't hired a car) we enjoyed the walking and were given a lift into town on occasion by the staff and the serenity of the place and the view made it preferable to the town centre. My fiance also made the right call taking me there, considering the home-made breakfast spread, including a wide selection of cakes, to start the day!

I would definitely go back and recommend it highly to others, especially couples looking for a special weekend. I've done my fair share of travelling, and the staff were the most welcoming I've ever experienced.

Although it is not in Sorrento proper, that may be a positive for some. True, it is farther away to get to sites of interest. However, parking is free, and the views of the Mediterranean are outstanding. The lemon and orange groves were lovely as well. Service was excellent, and the freshly baked cakes each morning were a nice treat. Rooms were large by European standards. Should we go back to Sorrento, we would definitely stay there again. We've been recommending it to friends and family already.

We stayed at Villa Oriana for 4 nights end of March. We had no idea where to position ourselves, thought of larger hotel chains but gave this B & B a try. We are so relieved that we chose this place!!!!it is simply stunning amongst the lemon and orange groves on the hill. The view is just stunning over the sea. The breakfast was so delicious and Maria taught me how to cook her famous quiche aswell as chocolate cake. The freshly squeezed orange juice and proper real tomatoes on freshly made foccacia each day was a highlite. The rooms are lovely and airy and we had the best night sleep. The staff were more than helpful and the courtesy bus down to dinner each night saved alot of money. Sorrento is one of the nicest bays also and is only a short drive from Positano and all the other tourist destinations. I would not hesitate recommending this place to travellers from all walks of life - Jane and Ben Cleary , London
